APNewsBreak: Probe questions runaway Prius story - Yahoo! News
Sometimes a story just catches my eye, and this one did.
The investigation is far from complete, and there are conflicting reports even within this article.Associated Press 1 am
Investigators with Toyota Motor Corp. and the federal government were unable to make a Toyota Prius speed out of control as its owner said it did on a California freeway, according to a memorandum obtained Saturday by The Associated Press that a congressional spokesman says casts doubt on the driver's story.
The brakes on the Prius also did not show wear consistent with having been applied at full force at high speeds for a long period, the Wall Street Journal reported Saturday, citing three people familiar with the probe, whom it did not name. The newspaper said the brakes may have been applied intermittently.
